With Returning to Reims French sociologist Didier Eribon sparked a heated debate about the meaning of class in today s society both in France and in Germany and probably in other countries in which the book was published as well The book is a memoir that tells the story of Eribon s coming of age as a homosexual youth in a poor working class family in Reims and the obstacles he faced on his way to becoming a professor in Paris The text is heavily interspersed with sociological language references to Bourdieu Foucault Sartre et al but it is not necessary to be an expert on these theoretical issues in order to follow Eribon s arguments and there are a lot of them The text breathes Eribon s enthusiasm for all matters of the mind and reading it is less of a literary and of an intellectual experience of course these two are connected but this is heavy on the scientific side I commend Eribon for highlighting the meaning of social class and habitus although these things are very real they are usually not widely discussed because they are uncomfortable To be part of the underclass is a stigma and for the upper class to acknowledge their privilege would highlight the fact that they might enjoy some advantages they did not have to work for If we remain silent about these things though they won t go away either and it is obvious who profits from that By telling his own story and backing it up with theoretical knowledge Eribon makes those disparities of privilege and their unjust conseuences very clearNevertheless there was one major aspect of the book that really upset me Eribon describes the working class as a place in the social system that you should escape and he demands respect for fleeing this class uick reality check Didier Sociology professors like yourself are important they can help to improve our society by uestioning and analyzing it Without waste collectors bricklayers nurses and firefighters though our society would collapse They are vital parts of our society that allow all of us to live the way we do These hard working people deserve reasonable pay good working conditions and above all you owe them respect you arrogant fool Who do you think you are just because you managed to go to university In case you haven t guessed it yet I am a working class kid and a first generation academic myself which is a source of pride not of shameWhich brings us to my last point Eribon also discusses why the working class in France used to vote for the communists and now tends to support the FN the far far right wing party I have a strong feeling that one of the major reasons for doing this and I am not excusing this voting pattern because it is inexcusable is that they are sick of working their butts off while entitled sociology professors look down upon them Respect between societal groups is pivotal when it comes to maintaining a functioning democracy There are strong feelings of resentment and prejudice on the side of the working class AND on the side of establishment Eribon experienced both and I absolutely agree with him that none of this should be accepted And Eribon himself is in a position in which he could be an agent for change and understanding because he has experienced living in different classes himself but he is underperforming in this role which is particularly sad as he clearly is highly intelligent and a true fighter This is a fascinating and engaging read and while I might have issues with some of Eribon s positions I am grateful he fired up the conversation
